David Ortiz Credits Red Sox Nation for Motivating Him to Play Hard (Video)


With Tim Wakefield retiring and Jason Varitek's future still uncertain, David Ortiz is the longest tenured member of the Red Sox. The veteran DH arrived at spring training on Wednesday, and he discussed how happy he was to be back with the club.

Ortiz admits that there was a time this offseason when he was unsure if he'd be returning to Boston. But the seven-time All-Star said that the Boston fans are what motivates him to play hard and keep doing what he's doing. He said that you can't put a price on the crowd support he receives from Red Sox Nation.
